    V6-CLUSTER-G773 *** ALERT NOTE *** PRODUCT: ENT MINER

    TITLE: Results will be incorrect with certain clustering critera

    KEYS: ENT MINER ENTERPRISE CLUSTER CLUSTERING FASTCLUS NODE INCORROUT
           INCORRSTAT

        If you specify 'Midrange,' 'Mean Absolute Deviation (Median)', 'Newton'
        or 'Modified Ekblom-Newton' as the Clustering Criterion (on the Seeds
        tab), the score code generated by the Clustering Node will be incorrect.
        This means that observations will not be correctly assigned to clusters.
        If you use the Score Node to assign observations based on the scoring
        code generated by the Clustering Node, those results will not be correct
        either. You will not see any errors or warnings to let you know that
        there is a problem. To circumvent the problem, use either 'Least
        Squares' or 'Least Squares (Fast)' as the Clustering Criterion.
